On a train to San Francisco for a conference, the guys spot Summer Glau playing herself, star of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. While Sheldon frets about a flash drive he forgot to pack, Howard and Raj take turns hitting on Summer.
While this was an episode of TV, it made me feel sorry for Summer and other celebrities who get this treatment more often than they'd like. I also wondered what I'd do in the guys' place. I'm a loyal Browncoat, but I don't feel the need to actually meet anyone from Firefly. If I had the chance, I'd say, "I really enjoyed the show and the movie and everything you've done since. Good luck." I'd shake hands, and then I'd walk away. No autograph or photo necessary.
The last time I had jitters meeting someone I admire, it turned out better than I could possibly imagine.
